The course was very good in terms teaching you how to design logic gates and build a processor and use VHDL code for that. I loved this course very much and I will start now doing the other courses that will help me develop a very complex processor. This is a good start for learners. It's very well described and you should always try to use mind and brain and try develop your skills to get to know the material. I really want one thing from lecturer is at least put some examples for students regarding week 7 and week 8. Because it was very hard for me to understand the content of these two weeks. Thanks for the effort that you have done on this course and I will wait for the next course of you.

Great review of basic digital design and basics to start with design process.

Highly recomended

Great for getting back in touch with the subject. And it's design with the industry needs in mind.

Got full knowledge on logic gates to processor that includes verilog codes
